I wouldn't use the rear stand. Like you said, the bike isn't designed for that kind of loading. As the suspension moves the rear stand will stress the FD and suspension, and the side loads will definitely stress the FD and pivot bearings.

Use the front stand and tie it down with straps to the telelever tightly. Then strap it down to the rear frame snug, but not tight, to keep the rear from moving around.
